Connecting with Prospects: How AI is Changing the Game for Sales Teams

Featured Image

For sales reps, daily prospecting and selling activities have traditionally involved a lot of manual, repetitive tasks that are time-consuming and often unproductive. From sifting through long lead lists to dial dozens or hundreds of numbers per day, to navigating call obstacles like voicemail boxes and phone trees, to extensively documenting each call interaction - the list of tedious to-dos can seem endless. 

Luckily, the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) is helping to automate and streamline many of these labor-intensive sales workflows. With the help of AI, sales reps can now work smarter and sell more efficiently than ever before. Here's a quick look at some of the key ways AI is revolutionizing core sales responsibilities.

Prioritizing  the Right Prospects

Rather than having reps waste time dialing down old static lead lists, AI can analyze large datasets to precisely identify and prioritize the most promising prospects to engage. Using algorithms to parse through firmographic, technographic, behavioral and intent data, AI models can pinpoint the leads that best fit an ideal customer profile. This ensures reps focus their outreach on the most qualified, purchase-ready buyers.

Connecting More Live Conversations

One of the most frustrating parts of any sales rep's day is dialing phone numbers only to be greeted by things like voicemail boxes, disconnected numbers, fax tones, and phone trees. AI-powered dialers with machine learning can intelligently detect and skip over these call obstacles to directly connect reps to live human beings on the other end. This drastically increases the number of actual selling conversations reps can have each day.

Better Dialing Efficiency

Traditional predictive dialers can sometimes accidentally dial multiple phone numbers for the same lead simultaneously - a poor experience for that prospect. AI dialers use smart parallel dialing workflows to ensure each prospect receives only one call attempt at most, preserving a positive engagement experience.

Higher Answer Rates

People are more inclined to pick up calls that appear to be coming from a local area code. AI dialing can automatically select and randomize local presence caller ID numbers based on each prospect's location geography to boost answer rates.

Collaborative Call Coaching

In addition to analyzing call data, AI enables innovative new ways for reps to receive in-the-moment coaching from peers and managers. AI-driven virtual selling environments and remote call monitoring allow managers to seamlessly listen in and provide real-time guidance, while also making it easy to join on peer calls for live shadowing and skill-sharing. 

Modern sellers know that to remain competitive, they need to leverage every advantage to maximize productivity and performance. By automating repetitive tasks and arming reps with AI-fueled data, insights and collaboration capabilities, sales teams can prospect smarter, connect more conversations, and accelerate sales cycles.
